Covid-19 and What's for Dinner


Covid-19 and What's for Dinner

OK, so I am just like everyone else and totally bored.  And TP has not been trading as well as I would like during these times.  SO I am officially doing some backtesting and continuing to adjust.  April will see some changes to how we trade based on each pair.

In the meantime....
Here's what's for dinner. LOL  Maybe I should feature a Cooking Keto for a Crowd Series.

CopyCat Barbacoa Chicken with Cilantro Cali Rice
12 servings

Seasoning Mix
10 minced garlic cloves
1 tsp Cumin
4 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Pepper
1 TBS coriander
1 ½ TSP Cinnamon
1 tsp Salt (high quality, I used pink)
3 tsp Chili Powder
3 limes juiced or 4-6 TBS Lime Juice

12 5 oz. boneless skinless chicken breast
2 cans fire-roasted tomatoes or 1 jar fire-roasted salsa

Cilantro Cali-Rice
6 cups riced Cauliflower (approx.. 2 heads)
1 tsp Salt (high quality, I used pink)
1 bunch Cilantro finely chopped
3 limes juiced or 4-6 Tbs Lime Juice

1.       Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.  Because I had such a large amount I baked the chicken instead of using my Foodi.
2.      Combine the Seasoning Mix in a bowl and set aside.  If too dry, use additional lime juice until you have a paste.
3.      Arrange Chicken Breast flat in a baking dish.  This is a double recipe for my family of 8.  I use two separate casserole dishes to fit the chicken without crowding.
4.      Rub the seasoning paste over all the chicken breast.
5.      Bake for 10 minutes and remove from oven.
6.      Top with fire-roasted tomatoes (salsa) and return to oven.  Bake for 10 additional minutes. 
7.      Remove leaves and stems and pulse Cauliflower in Ninja until a rice-like texture is achieved.
8.      Place skillet on medium heat.  Spray bottom of a large skillet. (I used Avocado Oil) (can sauté in the Foodi)
9.      Add Cauliflower to skillet and stir frequently.  Cauliflower has its own moisture.  Continue stirring as moisture releases 5-7 minutes.  Add salt, cilantro, and lime juice.  Sauté 2-3 additional minutes until Cauliflower reaches desired tenderness.
10.   Served on a bed of spinach for additional nutrition value.  (optional)

I have not traded the $20 account and soon I will be able to share why.  For now, there is a check I am chasing.  Expect more once the bag is secure.

Challenges of March 2020



Midway into March 2020 and it has proven to be quite a bit of a challenge for our scalping strategy.  I changed the trading times to include the Asain session.  As you can see, we see a large number of trades.  We are still hitting more than we usually hit on the SL. 
 -- Both accounts posted a decrease again.  For next week, we are going to see if a 30 pip SL helps out.  What we need the lowest number possible that does not cause other trades to stop out as well. 

The $20 account is not without its bruises.  Here is what transpired since the last time it was shared.  We are down -883 pips.  (thru 3/18/2020) However, this account is still 5 x more than where it started and as soon as we have a clear vision of how to proceed......

Just remember, these times and where built-in from the beginning!

New Merchandise


Good day everyone, we are still tweaking the numbers for our strategy.  For the next few weeks, I just expect to report on the statistics.  Nothing more, nothing less. 

All trades this week have a 50 pip SL due to all the irregularities in trading. Both accounts have finished the week at a loss.

WHOA! Money Management 101- TP4/TP4+


WHOA! Money Management 101- TP4/TP4+

As most of you know, I have not done much trading in the $20 to Seven Figures account while I have reassessed some losses from a few weeks ago. One thing that rings out over and over again is having proper money management system in place.
I will have a video to explain some changes I made at a later date.  Last week I boldly stated that a winning/losing record can be impressive and still not make a cent.  Because of that, there are some changes in how I am reporting on TP and TP4+ with more changes down the road.  For now, I want you to focus on the ROI.  Return On Investment is the bottom line dollar amount an account has grown or lost.  These results are reported above.

Next week, we will begin reporting on the $20 to 7 figures account again, and I will make graphics for any trades that happened during the transition period.  Thanks for your patience in this transition!  You can still view the account in realtime at:
